Salud Para Todos Environmental Health Education Outreach Project In Colonias
Many environmental health problems abound in colonias near Corpus Christi, such as poor drainage (leading to mosquito infestation, which in turn can cause encephalitis, meningitis and dengue fever), high blood-lead levels, illegal dumping, pesticides contamination, contaminated water, failing septic tanks, etc. Residents� lack of knowledge and understanding of the dangers of various environmental issues, as well as their low-income levels, exacerbate problems. The project will seek to assist residents by teaching them important environmental health concepts so that they can better avoid risks and can improve their health. This will be accomplished through partnering with volunteers who conduct health fairs for colonia residents on a quarterly basis. STCI will hire and train 4 lay health trainers in the neighborhoods to train residents regarding dangers of lead, contaminated water, and uncontrolled pesticide usage during at least 2 workshops.
